The Maid

Christina, an 18 year old girl, has just graduated high school. Before she can go to university, however, she needs to save up. The problem is, she can't seem to keep a job for more than a week. That is, until she finds an ad in the newspaper with a mother and two children in need of a housemaid.

Christina takes the job, but she soon finds out that one of the "children" is actually a 17 year old boy, who seems bent on hating her guts and making her job and life as difficult as possible. She quickly realizes that her job isn't going to be as easy as she thought.

Chapter 1 - Getting Hired

Fresh out of high school with no money for university. I figured I could just get a job, save up and go. But, keeping a job was proving harder than I expected. I'd had five the past three months. I spilled stuff; I dropped things; and I've always been terrible at math. I was hopeless...

"Dog groomer?"

"Yeah, that'll go over well," I replied sarcastically. Rachel continued to search through the jobs list in the paper, as I prepared to give up. "I don't know, Rachel. I don't think we're going to find anything, and, honestly, I'm really tired of looking." I rested my head in my hands.

"Hey! What about this?!" She said excitedly, and I lifted my head to read the four-letter word below her finger.

"Maid?" I asked doubtfully.

"Yeah! You could totally be a maid! All you have to do is clean, and I know you're good at that."

She had a point. The only thing I seemed to be good at was cleaning up after myself.

I slid the paper closer to myself and read the description aloud: "Job will require, but is not limited to, sweeping, vacuuming, and washing dishes, for two children and one adult. All accommodations will be provided, including housing and meals. If interested please call..."

"I don't know..." I said, still unconvinced.

"What are you talking about? You get free rent and food, and you still get paid on top of that. Just to clean! It's perfect. Seriously, if you don't take it, I will."
